Was recently listening to one of the a.m. news networks, and they gave some tips to help homeowners to save on energy costs.
"For each degree they lower the temperature (from a default of 70 degrees) over an eight-hour period, consumers can expect to cut their bills by one percent to two percent, according to Energy Star at the Environmental Protection Agency."
Makes sense and its what many of us have been told over the years - and why programmable tstats are so popular.
But its contrary to what I've been told recently re: my Buderus boiler - I was turning down the tstat during day, and turning it back up in evening, but was told this practice actually "confuses" the logamatic computer that governs the boiler. Have been told to set the tstat and leave it alone. "That" will save on energy costs.
